Athletes Burning Body Fat At Speed And Power Camp

Athletes must burn body fat to improve game-time performance. At Sports Fitness Hut's Speed and Power Camp, athletes worked hard, in 100 degree heat, to burn fat and improve body composition (less fat, more muscle).

See Speed Camp Youtube video!

During the camp we did bodyweight strength exercises, weight lifting exercises, medicine ball exercises, speed exercises and plyometric exercises. These types of intense exercises will burn body fat like crazy!

Have you ever seen an overfat athlete who was performing her or his sport at a high level? That same athlete would perform at an even higher level if her or his body fat was at an acceptable level for athletes.

Acceptable levels of body fat for athletes are as follows: Women 14-20%, Men 6-13%. Some athletic positions, like a catcher in baseball, might require a little more body fat (like 10% instead of 8%). Whereas a swimmer would need less body fat. The point is this: if you are serious about your athletic performance, being overfat will not help you achieve your highest athletic potential.

Research has also proven that the heart health benefits of anaerobic exercise (short bursts like jumps or sprinting) is superior to aerobic exercise.
